3 Things To Know About The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer

2019 chevrolet blazer (17)

Chevrolet has officially revealed the reborn Chevrolet Blazer in Atlanta. The 2019 model should give the upcoming Ford Bronco a run for its money, but it doesn’t look like it. Though it has an aggressive styling up front, the Blazer was made to look more like a family car rather than an off-road vehicle.

The new Blazer has exchanged its body-on-frame construction featuring a four-wheel drive system with a unibody structure partnered to a front-wheel drive. An all-wheel drive is now only an option. This is basically a two-row, five-seater mid-size SUV that somehow slots between the Equinox and the Traverse in the growing crossover lineup of Chevy.

Exterior

In terms of styling, the Blazer looks like a fusion of a 2019 Acura RDX and a 2019 Chevy Camaro. It has a massive grille, LED daytime running lights, a window line that sweeps upward towards the rear, and a floating roof treatment with blacked-out pillars.

Interior

The rear seats could slide to increase the leg room or the cargo space. If you fold the second row, the Blazer will have a total of 64.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

As for the tech stuff, Chevrolet hasn’t announced what will make the Blazer a cut above the rest. But details have emerged that standard to the crossover SUV would be an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 4G LTE connectivity that allows Wi-Fi hotspot, heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, an electronically lockable glovebox, a cargo management system, wireless smartphone charging, 6 USB ports, a hands-free power liftgate, and a panoramic twin-pane sunroof.

There are safety features, too, such as adaptive cruise control and a rear camera mirror. These will be available in the RS and Premier models.

Powertrain

There are two available options right now in terms of power. The first one is coming from a 2.5-liter inline-4 that can produce 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. That’s the base model. Those who need more power might want the 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces 305 horses and 269 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will be paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

S Appearance Package Adds Oomph To The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid with S Appearance Package

If you want to look cool while picking up your kids from soccer practice or hauling groceries to the trunk of your new minivan, then you should probably check out the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid that just got the S Appearance Package treatment.

This July, the automaker will start offering the minivan in the S Appearance package. The success of that same package being offered in the gasoline combustion version of the auto last fall triggered the decision to introduce the upgrades also in the hybrid version of the Chrysler Pacifica.

The updates will mostly be the same as on the gas versions. Buyers of the S package will get the same exterior gloss black accents, including grille surrounds, eyebrow headlamp accents, and window and rear valance moldings. The Chrysler wing badges, placed on the front and rear, are done also in black for the hybrid version, it comes with a special teal insert to highlight the green accents. There’s also the “Black Noise” finish on the Pacifica, S, and eHybrid badges, and the black roof rack and 18-inch wheels will come as standard.

The interior of the S Appearance package has black seats with gray accents, as well as the S logo, light gray stitching, and black accents on the wheel. There are also light gray stitching and the Anodized Ice Cave bezels on the instrument panel and the door trim. If we didn’t mention what element of the cabin you are waiting for, know that it has been wrapped in black. Everything, except for the contrast stitching and badges, has been blacked out.

The S Appearance Package on the 2019 Pacifica Hybrid models can be had with any exterior paint color, not just black. Orders will start next month for $595. It will arrive in dealerships in the fall.

2019 Aston Martin DB11 Classic Driver Edition is Just Too Cool

The 2019 Aston Martin DB11 Classic Driver Edition, a special edition model made for the 20th anniversary of the exclusive website Classic Driver, takes on a color scheme that resembles a lot like the American dollar. And why shouldn’t it be wrapped in green and gray? The special edition Aston Martin DB11 screams money and yes, only the ultra-rich would have the rights to own one.

The Classic Driver edition is probably the best bespoke creation made by Q by Aston Martin, the brand’s personalization program. The vehicle was made for Classic Driver, considered to be the world’s first website solely for the sophisticated car collectors and auto enthusiasts. There will only be 20 units of the Classic Driver Edition, and they can be had by long-time members of the Classic Driver community.

The body paint for the car is inspired by the Classic Driver’s green and grey colorway, as well as Aston’s Charcoal Grey finish that became famous back in the 60s. The color scheme is called Classic Driver Grey and it looks like a deep, glossy dark grey paint with fine and subtle pearls thrown in. When sunlight hits the color, it turns into a surprising green shade.

There will be no two models with the exact same shade of this colorway because the Aston Martin DB11 Classic Driver Editions are color sprayed by hand. To finish off the exterior look, the Classic Driver Edition comes also with a discrete carbon fiber body pack that is finished with a bespoke satin Eiffel Green lacquer.

The interior is an all-green interior that should look wrong but somehow was able to pull it off. Majority of the cabin is wrapped in the exclusive Eiffel Green Caithness leather, which is a rich shade of green leather. There’s an embroidered Parliament Green Classic Driver logo on the headrests. The finished product? Magical and almost untrue in its elegance.

Each unit will come with a 4.0-liter bi-turbo V-8 engine that produces 496 horsepower and 498 pound-feet of torque.

The standard DB11 already has a price tag of $208,000, so the special edition will certainly go north of that.
